This week we focused on ‘C’ as the ‘letter of the week’. We made a paper plate ‘cow’; the students had to follow instructions in order to assemble the finished product. they were very excited to take their work home. They listened to two different books about the letter’ C.’
This week we begun to learn how to use scissors; learning how to cut takes time and lots of concentration! I guide the paper, holding for the students; it is very hard work to open and shut the scissors. I will remind them to place their thumbs on the top, this aids success. We will practice using scissors regularly, the students will be so proud when they can finally cut.
As Thursday was the first day of autumn, we went for a nature walk around the property with Ms. Wiles class. We found seeds from plants; the children enjoyed blowing the seeds and feeling how soft they felt. We searched for yellow leaves and saw a woodpecker. They really enjoyed themselves.
